The Mazda MFI scholarship program puts out-of-school youths on path to study and work.

It is clear that education, in a way, is one of the best heritages that we can pass on through our genes. It helps us keep moving forward, do new things, and open new doors that the best economy cannot.  And this is what Bermaz Auto Philippines (BAP), the official distributor of Mazda vehicles in the Philippines, is sponsoring our needy yet deserving out-of-school youths.  

Mazda has partnered with MFI Foundation, Inc., to develop a scholarship program called the MFI’s Industrial Technicians’ Scholarship Program. Now in its third year, the program has just accepted 20 more youths to train under TESDA-accredited Dual Training System Automotive Motorcycle Technology course.
